Who We Are

Our vision

The Haverford School seeks to prepare boys to succeed and provide leadership in a world that is globally and culturally interconnected, technologically ever-advancing, and environmentally vulnerable. Haverford strives to create and nurture a supportive and inclusive community in which boys will develop a passion for lifelong learning, creative problem-solving, and good decision making. Every aspect of our program fosters lasting friendships among the boys, as well as meaningful relationships between the boys and their teachers.

The Haverford faculty prepares each boy to be future-ready through developing his character and his emotional intelligence, as well as his academic, artistic, and athletic talents. Pairing the best of a liberal arts education with innovative programs and technology, Haverford inspires its students to be intellectually curious, mindful of the past, and equipped with the vision, judgment, and skills to be successful leaders. Haverford prepares boys to face and resolve tomorrow's challenges and to make enduring, positive contributions to this complex world.

Our mission

The Haverford School, a nonsectarian college preparatory day school for junior kindergarten through grade 12, provides a superior liberal arts education for qualified boys of differing backgrounds. We are committed to developing the full intellectual, artistic, athletic, and moral potential in each boy, and we aim to graduate young men with strong character who possess a passion for learning and the necessary problem-solving skills to make a difference in the world. The Haverford School prepares boys for life.
